Not only is granite one of the world’s hardest textured materials, it’s also one of the most attractive.
Sinks made of granite are particularly elegant and bring a natural look into your kitchen. Our processed granite has a subtle shine and feels warm to the touch. The surface is finely textured but not porous, ensuring a high standard of hygiene. Composed of 80% quartz sand and 20% very hard acrylic resin, Franke’s hard-wearing granite gives you a lifetime of beauty.
Kitchens need to be bacteria free. And thanks to the Sanitized® treatment, Franke is recognized as a pioneer in the development of Granite compounds for sinks. Sanitized® reduces the growth of bacteria on the granite surface by 99%. At the same time, the granite remains resistant to stains and high temperatures up to 536° F.
Kitchens can be a critical location for spreading bacteria and demand special attention to hygiene. On unprotected material, bacteria can multiply every 20 minutes and have a negative effect on hygiene. The integrated Sanitized® hygiene function in granite sinks helps to keep this area clean and provides the sink with lasting protection. It does not replace normal cleaning but helps to keep surfaces free from bacteria. Tests have proven that granite treated with Sanitized® reduces bacteria and microbe growth by 99%.
Treated material reduces the risk of spreading and transferring bacteria. The possibility of transferring bacteria is higher on untreated material.
In most cases simply wiping the surface with a soapy nylon brush, using a circular motion, then rinsing thoroughly is all you need do. Do not use abrasive agents, powders, bleaches or drain cleaners.
